Tour description

On this tour we will go to the best food street in Cairo. Even if you are not familiar or a fan of Egyptian food you should go to Alfy Street and try the best street food in Cairo. It’s full of all sorts Egyptian food restaurants and carts as well as international food, which this street are government inspected regularly for cleanliness and considered very safe. It is the ideal place to have dinner after your tour in Cairo.

This street is where local Egyptian families gather to eat various food and meals and drink fresh fruit drinks and hot drinks at the cheapest prices

Yes, at the cheapest prices!

For only 10 dollars, you can eat more than three meals, drink a large sized fresh juice, get some sweets and drink a delicious hot cup of Egyptian tea to finish.

You will see the cooking process from A to Z, not only about the foodstuffs, but also you will get a chance to learn about Egyptian eating habits which are different from all other countries. Drinking Hibiscus, Karakare, Helba, or any of the various typical Egyptian beverages, is a pleasant experience for visitors and guests to get a real taste experience. For smokers, there is the Shisha or hoka. 

I will be with you to explain our Egyptian food and take the best photos of your Cairo street food tour. It's the place where food art and Cairo lifestyle come together harmoniously providing you a unique & remarkable experience.

Recomiendo totalmente salir un poco de los típicos tours y hacer free tours. Asi conocerás más sobre Egipto y sus costumbres locales, no solo las turistadas. Sherif fue encantador y divertido y nos habría encantado haber hecho más tours con él, pero teniamos todo contratado. Se le entiende genial en inglés, así que animaros si habláis un poco. ¡Os va a encantar!

Sharif is very personable, fun and loves to talk. I would have loved to have spent more time and stops at places and gotten deeper into the Egyptian food history
